User commentsNot the usual newly completed pristine models, but well used surviving veterans of 1/2 A combat with battle scars [more pics 003].

Hello Mary & Steve, Here are a couple of photos of my Baby Flite Streak built recently from an original (very rare) Top Flite kit [main pic, 005]. It's covered with silkspan and finished with clear and coloured butyrate dope. The engine is a Cox Golden Bee .049. All very traditional. Regardless of size, the airborne agility of George Aldrich's "Flite Streak" design is the stuff of legends, and the "Baby" version does not disappoint. As a bonus, it's one of the few .049 models that doesn't just drop from the sky when the engine quits. It's superb gliding ability enables safe and controlled landings every time... well, almost.

Hi Guys - I just bought a vintage, April 1960 Model Airplane News to get Aldrich's article on his "Peacemaker." This one is the full fuselage version, even a pilot in a full cockpit with dummy gauges, throttle and radio with a loop antenna. On page 56 I found this ad [pic 006] for Top Flite Models 1/2A "Baby Flite Streak" complete with a photo of George Aldrich. The engine does not look like a Cox reed-valve to me (Holland "Wasp"?). The kit was advertised at $1.98, adjusted for cost of living, that's $17.39 in 2020 "funny money". Thought you'd like to see it.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
